UML14 — Inheritance of Stereotypes

  • Key: UML14-981
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3210
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: David Frankel Consulting ( David Frankel)
  • Summary:

    Issue: The semantics of inheritance (UML 1.3, ad/99-06-8, p. 60-61) does
    not include Stereotypes as being among the things that a subclass inherits
    from its superclasses.

    Recommendation: Explicitly specify that Stereotypes are inherited.

    Discussion: UML specifies that Constraints are inherited. A Stereotype is
    logically a constraint, and can even formally define Constraints that apply
    to stereotyped ModeledElements. Consider a Class A that is stereotyped S, where C is the Constraint that the Stereotype definition specifies for all ModelElements stereotyped S. Now consider Class B that
    inherits A. It stands to reason that the Constraint C applies to Class B.
